Hairstylist Jawed Habib, known for his line of hair salons across the country, recently had an ad put out in his company’s name for the upcoming Durga Puja, which did not go down well with some people.
The print ad showed Goddess Durga, along with her children Kartik, Lakshmi, Saraswati and Ganesh, having a relaxing day at Habib’s beauty parlour. The tag said, “Gods too visit JH salon.”
The sight of the goddesses and gods putting on make-up and counting money hurt the religious sentiments of many, and they made their anger clear on social media.

HABIB SAYS SORRY
Habib did not take too long to come to Twitter and for the ad and for “hurting sentiments,”.
Habib, in a video posted yesterday, said that the ad was not issued by his company but by a “partner” who did not seek his permission before doing so. The hairstylist, nonetheless, apologised profusely for it.
